  1. Steve, I don't recall getting any spam emails on your site. I think you have a good idea and if it makes life easier to run your forum, go for it. I learned a long time ago to not make something you really enjoy become a business, then it turns into a overwhelming job. Sooner or later you may get frustrated and simply not want to do it any more. In my opinion, for anyone who wants to sell something, the idea of knowing either who they're buying from or selling to seems more secure. If someone whats to have anyone in the world contact them to make a sale, there is always eBay or FB marketplace just to name a few. In my humble opinion, you are what makes this site unique and too valuable to get burned out with it. S.
  2. Which is most sensitive to the smallest scrubber type gold?
  3. Well how about if an after market coil company made some "ultra-hot DD Focused Core (DD-FC)" coils for the GPX 4500 and 5000? A DD coil hotter or equal to my 12x8" Evo on small gold would be nice.
  4. Steve Thanks. Good advice. For the small stuff I do have my 24k with 6" coil. I also just purchased a Legend. So together especially the 24k and Legend take care of the small gold. However one of the attractions is the Axiom on smaller gold and the DD coils with what looks like a better iron check which I don't use on the GPX. Cheers
  5. From everything I've read on the Axiom from Steve H. and others I can see no reason not to trade in or sell my 5000 to offset costs in purchasing an Axiom. It's a difficult decision for me as I have found a lot of gold with the 5000 over the years. Can anyone give me a reason not to do this? I have several coils from the 8x6 to the largest for the 5000. From what I can see the only con is maybe a lack of coils at this time for the Axiom. However looks like that will change with time. For use in Northern California and the Mojave for gold prospecting. Thanks for your thoughts in advance.
  6. Thought someone might be interested since there has not been many good gold prospecting videos with the Legend. I'm liking my Legend more and more as time goes on. Very surprised with it actually the more I compare it with my 24k.
  7. I have never had any issue either on your forum. I consider membership here a privilege as well Steve. I am not into the social media thing as I'm not comfortable with it. I only belong to this forum and another well run truck camper forum. I vote to keep the PM as is for now. Thanks for all you do here.
  8. I can't find any prices yet. She was asked a few times however no answer on price.
  9. Looks like 2 new coils for the Legend just announced. A 9.5x6 and a 12x9. Both weigh less then the stock 11". New Beta update with improvements and new features. New coils are already up on the Notka website.
  10. Phrunt, Jeff M and Steve H, Thanks for the advise. Legend is on the way.
  11. Trying to decide between the Gold Kruzer and the Legend. Need advise from someone who has used both the Legend and Gold Kruzer. I am wanting to detect a large creek on my claims in northern California. I want a detector that is waterproof and that is excellent on very fine small gold. While I do get larger gold most is very small. The detectors I use are a Whites 24k and a GPX 5000. I can get a new G Kruzer for $375.
  12. Can anyone confirm the exact weight of the ORX with control box, complete stem, HF elliptical coil with battery and lower shaft? I did see 1 pound 14 oz. However the XP web site also says hip mounted next to the weight. If anyone knows the waterproof kit weight would be nice too? I'm an ultra light backpacker so weight matters. Thanks
  13. I've had a Whites 24k since it's release. Can confirm it is a great detector. Have all the coils made for it. The 6" concentric is a small gold killer. It's my go to coil. Hoping Garrett makes a GMX waterproof version sooner than later.
  14. Garrett's new Goldmaster 24k has been added to their website. Check out the instructional videos. Someone might look familiar. Hope Garrett comes out with the GMX waterproof version soon. https://garrett.com/garrett-goldmaster-24k-metal-detector
  15. Love the 24k. Interesting when Jim finds a nugget the display reads 08 then solid 01, 99 and 98. Not gold from my experience and I have found a lot of gold over the last 2 seasons with the 24k. The nugget was of good size at only about 3". Easy for the 24k to ID. From my experience the 24k would have displayed different. Can someone explain? Actually I think I know the answer. Just wondering if anyone else noticed that knows the 24k. If I am wrong maybe someone knows better and I would like to hear from them.
